The Pacific War Firsthand
Reviewed in the United States on September 21, 2018
This is one of the best books I have ever read about the history of WWII In the Pacific. As a college student from 1962-1966 I was a history major. You are taught in writing about history to research from original sources. This book illustrates why that rule is important. I am so impressed by the greatest generation who fought so well in WWII when the entire world was in danger of being taken over by despotic governments in Germany and Japan. I wonder if the young of today who have had life handed to them on a silver platter could or would rise to the occasion to defend our country in time of need like those in this book. I fear the answer is no. If we can't stand during the national anthem at a football game we won't be able to stand to defend our liberties when the time comes to do so. Not a single marine in this book would disrespect our flag.
